"Kick In," Willard Mack's famous
drama of the underworld, will be
the fifth production of the summer
season to be presented by Play
Production's Michigan Repertory
players beginning at 8:15 o'clock
tonight in the Lydia Mendelssohn
theater, and continuing the rest of
the week.
This play which has been termed
the best of all crook plays met with
a tremendous success wherever it
has been offered. In the original
cast, the role of Chick Hekes was
taken by John Barrymore. The
melodrama is in four acts, and two
sets.
Both Prof. Chester M. Wallace
and Valentine B. Windt have di-
rected the staging of this week's
play. Professor Wallace is a per-
sonal friend of Willard Mack, the
playwright.
In preparation for taking the
role of Charlie, the dope addict, one
member of Play Production spent
a day in Detroit, visiting the many
opium and other dope dens. A
member of the Narcotic squad of'
the Detroit police conducted the
visitation, which revealed the prop-
er method one should adopt who is
to be a true fiend, to properly
take the dope and react under its
influence.
The Ann Arbor police department
has cooperated with the Repertory
group in the development of this
drama of crime by acting in the
capacity of technical adviser.

a noticeable lack of good ensemble.
Mr. Carl Lindgren, the basso so-
loist, assisting the program, sang
one group of typical classical num-
bers. In his second appearance he
offered two melodious Swedish
songs of great charm. Mr. Lind-
gren's tone quality was strained at
times, but his interpretation was
excellent. Before several of his
numbers, the singer gave brief ex-
planations. These due to his

Outstanding musical ability was
present in the violin solos of MisL

a clear strong tone made the Sara-
